There’s an old phrase that goes, “all the worlds a stage and all the men and women merely players.” I bring this up because we all put on an act to hide our emotions so that we don’t burden or worry others around us, so we end up suppressing them to a point where we’re just not okay anymore. It’s a difficult subject matter but the British duo Seafret handle the topic perfectly in their latest single Most Of Us Are Strangers.
Lyrically this track is pure poetry with them diving into how if we showed people our true emotions their opinions on us would change so, in a strange way, most of us are strangers to one another, even if we’ve known them for years. The production is minimalistic with just a somber guitar and melancholy piano melody leading the track with the duo’s mesmerisingly honest and personal vocals evoking the message of this track to sheer perfection. Although the song is melancholy it also offers the positive message that it’s okay to not be okay and it’s okay to open up and express yourself to others. Just beautiful.
